Wariner returns with concert at new auditorium
In July 8 Issue
By Derek Aaron
Times Journal Reporter

For the first time in many years, Grammy-award winning country music recording artist Steve Wariner will be performing in front of a live audience in Russell County when he visits the Russell County Schools' Auditorium/Natatorium Complex in September.

The concert, entitled "An Evening with Grammy Award Winner Steve Wariner" is slated for Saturday, Sept. 4 at 7:30 p.m., according to Susan Melton with the Russell County School System.

"All profit that will be made will go toward programs to bring back into the school system here at the auditorium," Melton said. "It will benefit all students."

She said the concert organized after she made a call to Wariner's Nashville-based agent, Bonne Sugarman.

"I told her we would love to have Steve up here since he is a Russell Countian," she said. "It is so expensive to take students to Lexington, Louisville and Nashville that we're trying to bring the arts and drama here so our students can attend free."

With the Steve Wariner concert, all funds made will go toward bringing other productions to the auditorium for Russell County students.

"It has been a while since Steve has been here and we're just so proud of him and his big Grammy award win," Melton said. "We appreciate he is going to do this for our school system."

Wariner will also receive an undisclosed fee for his performance.

Tickets to the concert are $55 each. To purchase tickets, email susan.melton@russell.kyschools.us or rita.branscum@russell.kyschools.us or deborah.whittle@russell.kyschools.us or call 270-866-6300 or 270-566-3586.

Tickets purchased by July 15 have a chance to win backstage VIP passes to meet and greet Steve, Melton said.

"We're just really excited," Melton said. "We hope it is a big hit."

She said around 550 tickets remain for the concert.       

Wariner won his 4th Grammy earlier this year for his tribute to Chet Atkins.

His recording, 'The Producer's Medley,' won in the category of Best Country Instrumental Performance.

The album is a tribute to the man who gave Wariner his big break in the music business several decades ago.
